Özet

Within the scope of this study, a comprehensive research has been conducted to develop an effective procedure for the treatment of pharmaceutically active compounds (FAC) found in wastewater. Carmabazine (CAM) and ibuprofen (IBU) have been selected as the model FAC to investigate the adsorption performance of various macroporous resins (XAD 2, 4, 7 and 16). The adsorption removal was found to be between 87 and 99% under the optimum conditions (500 mg of adsorbent for the adsorption of 30 mg L-1 CAM and IBU solutions at 150 rpm mixing speed of shaking bath). Equilibrium (Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms) and kinetic (pseudo-first order and pseudo-second order) models have been applied for analysis and representation of data
